The Week in Gaming Apps

Illustration for article titled The Week in Gaming Apps

This week our gaming apps had the rhythm of PaRappa the Rapper's creator, the controversy of illegal immigration, and the dubious honor of being the iPhone's first true World of Warcraft clone.

This week's gaming apps were all iOS-centric, but we've constantly got our eye out for important games on other mobile platforms. Considering my iPhone 4 was stolen during the break-in last weekend, there's a good chance my next gaming app will be on my Windows Phone 7.

That game, Smuggle Truck, is then submitted to the iTunes App Store. It is, unsurprisingly, rejected. What do you do?

For the love of all things holy, can an editor on here force themselves to buy the most popular mobile OS out there and give us some games to play? Heck, I understand Android has less games than Apple, so I'd even be happy with one fucking game a week. But this lacking feature is weak sauce. With phones like the Galaxy S II and the HTC Sensation coming soon, the Android experience is now on par/has surpassed that of Apple's offering. Please fix this inconsistency.

On a side note, what the fuck happened to comments of the week? Bring that back too while your at it. This place feels less like a community without it. Just some place for video game news.
